Subject: Taste it!
Subject: it was a show...thats what can be said about it
still, thanks, jon for the hard work...keep taping bisco and the tracks and splits will come in time. and sometimes its hard to avoid the dick that sings along to cyclone 4 feet from a mic...how are you even singing along? its a damn instrumental. and apparently that guy was right next to you...(i may have hit him during spraypaints first chorus)
jeeezes...im in the paint as i write this and the crowd noise/talking is overwhelming..."yeah, they're planin on goin into something."...what a profound statement.
show-wise, this is pretty average (not as bad as some have said, IMO) but not what a halloween show should be. S&M was forced from the beginning and they lost the timing at least three times. from there through the 'spooky' part of caves i wanted to rip my face from the bones to be entertained. > dribble > confro end was hardly a save, but alright. stone > waltz was played where it should be, the beginning of a set, not the end. On time > dys confro was fun...the end of composed on time needs some work, and the jam that followed was nothing new, but still a fun one. tempest seemed pretty lethargic both live and again on tape (both mali-faced and sober in other words) and that one note in the middle of a tricycle stanza should have been changed to the one note that is the difference between trike and a buddha ending (buddha endings have been crushed this year). plus, what the hell is that drop after trike to head back to the paint? one of a few musical non sequiturs of the evening. spy was spy and again i wanted to tear my face. and i am one was a hair better than killing in the name. dont bother listening to the encore.
thats what ive got to say about it...listen for yourself and agree or tell me a deaf man would be making better use of hearing ears.
I hadn't listened to any of the Biscuits' songs until I learned about the tickets for tapers deal. I took a listen and thought they were pretty good and that I might like to record them, so I have no intimate experience with their works.
I did, however, when I was looking where to split the tracks, have their album discography at hand (despite what little use it was), other peoples' Biscuits recordings via LMA, the set list and lyrics. I listened and made judgment calls. The songs that don't transition to others were easy, but, I think I did OK deciding where to split the others.
Subject: hearing before seeing?
wish i had been there, bummer people thought it was a sub par show!
Subject: holy fuck
Subject: yea seriously!!!!
giving it a 4 just because they played Pimp Blue Rikki. Even if the rest of the show is terrible, at least it has a tall cool PBR.
Subject: Sweet show
